So-so only. Good things and bad things, but I most likely would not stay here again. I doubt I'd stay at any Oxford Suites property, this is the 2nd one I tried and I just don't like a lot of their policies. They just seem to be so budget conscious on saving pennies everywhere in consideration for being customer friendly that I am turned off. Check-in was not good, I asked for a QUIET room away from the highway. They gave me a room away from the highway but right above the swimming pool with screaming kids in it. So they moved me to another room, why not put me in that quiet room first??? Room itself was laid out nicely with 2 TVs, comfy bed. 2 rooms separated by a sliding pocket door. Front room had a semi-comfy couch, a wooden floor, TV, microwave, fridge, small kitchen sink. The wooden floor was bad because every time anyone walked down the walkway outside, the entire room vibrated, seriously it did! It also vibrated badly when the kids next door were romping around uncontrolled. The bedroom area was carpeted and much nicer and quieter. Bed was very soft because of a pad under the sheets, but that pad was seriously short of the bed edges. Bathroom sink was also in the bedroom, but it was way too high off the floor, so leaning in to use the sink was VERY uncomfortable. Oxford seems to do anything they can to save a penny here, a nickel here, or a dime there. They give you no soap or shampoo but you must use unsanitary dispenser bottles. The soap at the sink smelled nice, but was almost total water and didn't lather at all. Watered down to save money? I've never seen liquid soap so thin and watery. The bathroom had a toilet and shower. The shower fluctatuated badly with temperature. They had bottles fastened to the wall with shampoo, conditioner, and soap. This soap was thick like liquid soap is supposed to be. But the bottles had such short spouts on them that you couldn't even get most of your hand under where the liquid dropped out of. Very unsanitary also. 2 TVs, but both were sad. The one had the picture so misadjusted that you couldn't watch any channel like ESPN or CNN because the running ticker at the bottom was virtually all cut off and unreadable. The TV in the other room was snowy on half the channels. So pick a channel and see if either TV gets it properly for you to watch. Breakfast was just a tad better than the other Oxford. Portion control is their policy, it really isn't a "buffet" breakfast per se. And WHY give you little paper coupons to get the breakfast? Food is terrible, one day the eggs made me sick for the entire day. The second day you were given semi-cold pancakes with ice cold butter. Ever try to spread rock hard ice cold butter on semi-cold pancakes? Just doesn't work. Plus the breakfast room is way too small if they are crowded and it was too cold to sit outside. Oxford must turn down the temperature on the warming trays so this stuff either goes bad or is cold. And the walls are tissue-paper thin in the front room wooded floor area, the bedrooms seem to be maybe 2 or 3 sheets of tissue paper thick, a little quieter, but not much. Constant noise from adjoining rooms, especially if kids and/or dogs are in there. Sorry to be so long-winded, but Oxford just doesn't fit my needs as a hotel chain. I'd rank them worst of any other hotel chains I've ever stayed in of the mid-range properties. I guess they're better than Motel 6, but I don't know. Doubtful if I will ever stay at Oxford again. I'll stay where the chain might be budget conscious, but doesn't make it so obvious.
